👋 Before you go

Georgia Ball is a Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) professional with years of experience as a player and an instructor. Still, that doesn’t prevent her from being the victim of “mansplaining” about the sport.

In a video posted to her social media, Ball shows an experience she had at a driving range. While she’s firing off balls downrange, she’s approached by a man who says he has “20 years” of golf experience—giving him enough knowledge to insist that she’s golfing incorrectly.

Ball tries her best to simply ignore the man, offering little assurances to him and informing him that she’s simply “going through a swing change.” Despite this, the man insists on offering her more advice.

This video went incredibly viral, amassing over 11 million views on TikTok in just a few days.
